Gillian’s chronic back pain had left her incontinent and unable to walk more than a few paces. Although Wheelchair Services had supplied her with an indoor electric wheelchair they wouldn’t provide an outdoor one due to access problems. This meant that Gillian was very isolated and lacked any independence. DTD Charity was able to help with the purchase of a mobility scooter. At Christmas Gillian wrote to say how her life had greatly improved with the scooter and how she was enjoying getting out and about. It was lovely to hear about such a positive outcome.
